Summary
Wonder Woman has been a star on television and, of course, in comic books - but this is her first ever hardback picture book. Written in a simple, engaging manner perfect for a very young audience and illustrated with bright, bold artwork, inspired by the original comic book art, Wonder Woman is the ideal introduction to this legendary superhero. Children will find out how the daughter of an Amazon queen grew up to become a protector of mankind, with a mission to teach peace and kindness to all.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The third of Cosentino's picture-book introductions to the leading triumvirate of DC Comics superheroes (Batman: The Story of the Dark Knight, 2008, and Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel, 2010) covers the lasso-wielding Wonder Woman. With the earnestness that characterized old-time superhero comics (she is charged to save mankind and unite the people of earth through love and kindness ), the narrative follows her transformation from Amazon princess to crime fighter extraordinaire. Balancing retro comic-book elements with a modern aesthetic, this provides another popular portal to the massive mythology of the superhero canon.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
